Subject: 09.01.19 Shear Force and Protein Function Regulation, Beijing, China
Sino-German Workshop on
*Shear as Regulatory Driving Force in the Extracellular Space*

January 19 to 24, 2009
Sino-German Center for Research Promotion
Beijing, P.R. China

organized by
R. Schneppenheim (UKE Hamburg)
F. Graeter (CAS/MPG PICB, Shanghai)
C. Baldauf (CAS/MPG PICB, Shanghai)

Mechanical force recently manifests itself as a major physiological stimulus. 
How forces like shear flow in blood vessels tightly control biological 
processes such as adhesion or tissue repair remains largely unknown. 
The workshop will address the subject of shear-induced processes in blood 
and extracellular space in general from the broad perspective of genetics, 
medicine, biophysics, and protein biochemistry, including state-of-the-art 
experimental and theoretical approaches.
Topics include but are not limited to:
    * Mechanical control of receptor function
    * Shear force sensing
    * Force propagation in proteins
    * Von Willebrand factor and blood clotting
    * Silk fiber formation under flow conditions
